|All Eleven Shanahans|
There are times when we – writers – must be shameless. Just as we have learned to fill our own gas tanks, squeegee the window and check the oil at the gas station; deposit and withdraw money from the bank without a teller, buss our table after lunch; and even check out our own groceries, and bag them in our own bags; if you are a writer you know you must promote your own book. With that in mind, I pass along recent reviews of Killing Frost the last book in my Shanahan series 25 years after the first book was published.
“The real prize here is the tone, which Tierney keeps expertly hovering between compassionate valediction and civic outrage.” — Kirkus Reviews
“…the book’s real appeal is Shanahan’s gruff, dogged devotion to his much younger girlfriend, Maureen. Maureen keeps this old, broken-down detective going with a mixture of tough love, canny professional assistance, and gritty determination. This entry is a tribute to human decency and one man’s refusal to give up in the face of age and inevitable physical deterioration.” — Publisher’s Weekly (starred review)
“I’ve read and greatly enjoyed every entry to feature this brave, cantankerous and often brilliant private eye and highly recommend not only this book, but all those that have preceded it.” — George Easter, Deadly Pleasures
